There are things that happen in life that are hard to understand or hard to see the positives and I am currently fighting that battle right now. Two days ago I was involved in a serious car accident that resulted in my and the other driver’s vehicle being totaled. I was lucky enough to walk away from the crash with only experiencing whiplash and I believe the other driver is fine as well. The accident could have been a lot worse and I am beyond thankful and grateful that it wasn’t. To be completely honest though, I am also feeling a lot of anger. My life has taken a complete 180 and I don’t understand why it had to be me on that road, at that intersection, at that time. Why me?
Then, without being able to control it, my anger turns into anxiety and “what if” thoughts flood my mind. What if I just did one thing different that day that then this never would have happened. What if I was two seconds later and she hit me? Would I still be alive? All my life I have thanked God for blessing me with things He has given me and I thank Him everyday for my family, husband, friends and the life He has helped me build. That hasn’t changed. I am still counting my blessings, thanking God for another day of life and being surrounded by people whom I love.
I am somewhat embarrassed to be having these roller coasters of emotions. I understand that the situation can’t change and there isn’t anything I can do about it anymore so I need to just move on. I’ll get there. But for now, I am going to take it day by day, take the good with the bad and continue to be thankful.
I made this recipe for a Healthy Happy Hour event a couple girlfriends and I hosted. We are really dialing in and focusing our efforts on coaching others how to live a healthy holiday season while still enjoying those festive indulgences. Dips are always a popular appetizer to have at gatherings so I wanted to come up with a healthier option for people!
